Description - Africa Since Independence by Paul Nugent
This is a genuinely comparative study of the different trajectories and experiences of independent African states. Following the independence of the Sudan and Ghana in 1956 7, Africans have been engaged in efforts to fashion a workable political and economic dispensation for the post colonial era. Paul Nugent examines the record of African Socialist, Afro Marxist and Capitalist regimes over the first two decades, and explores the retrenchment associated with structural adjustment, as well as the record of multi partyism after 1989. Nugent also addresses the impact of HIV and AIDS, the contagion of warfare and efforts at achieving national reconciliation.
